Parliamentary candidate censors TV feature in Rivne
The Rivne 1 TV Channel’s management have removed a video features about single-mandate electoral district candidates after one candidate put pressure on the channel considering that he hadn’t been presented in a positive enough light.
According to the author of the feature Tetyana Koval, the feature was removed, and then a day later people from the same party as the person who didn’t like the way he was presented began through mutual acquaintances asking about her health and whether she had not been threatened by the person or on his behalf.
Ms Koval takes the threats seriously, but believes she has a duty to provide balanced and unbiased information about the elections. She calls on her journalist colleagues to do the same.
